I would look at the neighborhood and area to get the best idea of what a home may be worth in the future. As far as the two builders are concerned you really need to look at what you get for the money. I too would give a nod to DR Horton but you do need to compare. Look at what you are getting. What kinds of Green technology are they using to keep utility costs down? These are just some of the things that will help your home appreciate over the years. Of course the main thing will be how well you take care of your home. Have you updated it and kept up with maintenance items?
So there are lots of things to consider. I would ignore the builder and just look at what is important. Location, amenities, floor plan and how that all works with your lifestyle.
Hope this helps.
